About Narwhal Yacht Charters

Your captain.

Master Captain (certified by the United States Coast Guard) Eric Ludovico Peter Puleio, at your service.  I am the President and Founder of Narwhal Yacht Charters, a company I’ve created in order to share my love of sailing with others. 2024 marks the 13th year of my company on New York Harbor, where I have safely sailed over 55,400 nautical miles aboard my sailboat.  

Sailing is in my blood.  I began sailing while in the womb of my mother and haven’t stopped since.  The smiles I’ve witnessed while taking my friends sailing on my first sailboat have inspired me to quit Corporate America, buy and restore a classic sailboat, and sail for a living.  I hope to share my passion of sailing with you! 

The Classic Sailboat "Genesis"

My mother and father lived on a sailboat, a Fisher 30, for the first six years of their marriage.  They named her the “Genesis”, which means the beginning, because it represented the beginning of their love for one another, as well as the beginning of our family.  I spent every summer of my childhood sailing the original Genesis with my parents and two siblings and have nothing but the sweetest memories of those times.  Unfortunately, my father passed away when I was 18 and we had to sell the family boat.  

To honor my father and the fond times shared between my family, I’ve bolted the two original nameplates my dad handmade in 1973 to the sides of my sailboat and renamed her the “Genesis”.  Now every time I am at the helm, my father is right there beside me, filling the Genesis’s sails with wind! 

Why the name "Narwhal Yacht Charters"?

Good question! Did you know that Narwhal Yacht Charters in an acronym for NYC?  Just like the New York City skyline we sail along, Narwhal Yacht Charters is filled with energy.  Narwhals are Arctic whales known for their playful and social demeanor, much like me while sailing on my beautiful sailboat, the Genesis.  And how cool is that mythical “horn” of theirs?  It’s actually an 8-10 foot tooth!

Do you like my company’s logo?  This happy narwhal is protected in the “Narwhal Yacht Charters” life ring, gently sailing through the water with the same sail plan that the Genesis flies.  The upward slope of the narwhal’s horn signifies one’s continuous pursuit of positive growth.  All that in a logo?  Yep!  If I put this much thought into the logo, just think about how much thought I put into the sailing experience I provide aboard the Genesis! 

Charter Options with Pricing

Never a dull moment.

An extremely happy group aboard the Genesis!

The 10 best boat rentals in NYC

Debating between a two-hour hire or a full-day trip along the Hudson? Choose a boat to start your adventures around NYC

Courtesy: Sailo

Alex Floyd-Douglass

Finding a boat rental may not be the first thing on your mind when planning your next trip to NYC. However, some would argue (us included) that one of the best ways to see the city at its best is on the water. From two-hour bareboat hires (yes, you’ll be the skipper) or a boat tour to full-day events fit for up to 600 people on a super yacht, there is a wide choice of boat rental options in New York City for you to choose from And we’re here to walk you through them and help you find the right one for you—and your socials, of course. Let’s get into it. 

Before sailing into our list of the best boat rentals in NYC, we’ve got to keep you in the know-how for renting boats. It may sound super simple, but there are certainly a few things you should know before booking your dream yacht. Thanks to us (no shame), we’ve put in the research so you don't have to. Take a look and get ready for one of the best things to do in NYC .

RECOMMENDED:   The best tours and walks in NYC

How much does it cost to rent a boat in NYC?

Renting a boat in NYC can be a surprisingly cheap thing to do, especially when split between your pals or family members. Most of the offerings are centered around quarter- and half-day rentals, while the mega-party yachts occasionally deliver a full-day experience. Prices for quarter-day boat rentals begin around $500, while larger boats and half-day rentals can get into the lower thousands. With that in mind, we’d suggest finalizing your guestlist and budget before putting down a deposit. It's smarter in the long run, promise.

How much does it cost to charter a private yacht in NYC?

Chartering a private yacht in NYC varies from other parts of the country where you’ll often hear of $100,000 charters as standard procedure. Thankfully, in New York City, things are a little different. Full-day charters can range from $5,000 to $60,000 – although the higher price points typically cater to large groups of 300 guests plus. it's best to decide beforehand what kind of party you’re throwing and how many guests you’d like to accommodate to ensure you get the best deal.

What do you need to rent a boat in NYC?

To rent a boat in NYC, you’ll need to be over 18 years old, hold a valid driver’s license, and have a credit card (in most cases). In some circumstances, you’ll also need a Boating Safety Certificate, but it’s best to check in with your boat rental company in advance to find out exactly what they need from you. Alternatively, you won’t need any sailing qualifications if you charter a private yacht as the captain will be in charge – just have the cash ready.

Does a crew come with a boat rental in NYC?

No, a crew doesn’t come with a boat rental in NYC. If a boat is offered bareboat, this means that you’ll be the skipper for the duration of the trip and there will be no captain onboard. However, if you charter a private yacht, more often than not, there will be a crew onboard to heighten your experience. You will need to verify this in your package offering.

What's the difference between NYC rentals and charters?

Most boat rentals in NYC are typically quarter-day or half-day trips centered around the Hudson River and offer up a unique perspective of New York City. There’s also a large variety of boats available, ranging from speedy motorboats to soaring sailboats. A few boat rentals in NYC offer the bareboat option, while the majority will have a captain available to sail you around the Big Apple's coastline so you sit back, relax on charter and enjoy that glass of bubbly in peace.

2.  The Catalina Standard

The Catalina Standard

There's nothing quite like hiring a private sailboat from Brooklyn Bridge Park and gliding across the Hudson River.

3.  The Sea Ray 270

Oh nothing, we just see a bachelorette party on the horizon.

4.  The United States Coast Guard Yard Lightship

If you’re searching for iconic, you've just found it. This US Lightship comes from the '50s before she was decommissioned in 1985. A unique charter offering, she caters to over 100 guests and is one of the few full-day event options aboard a ship in NYC. And if not for anything else, she's pretty Instagrammable.

This one-of-a-kind boat rental in NYC offers guests a private fishing charter experience. Bask in the ambiance of Long Island's coastline while Captain Arthur shows you how to perfect your tackle – pun not intended. Simply cast your line and see what comes of it. Ay-ay, captain.

7.  The Luxury Cruise

The Luxury Cruise

Hop aboard this 200ft European-style party boat originally from the naughty ‘90s. Catering for 300, this cruise provides guests with epic views of the Manhattan coastline (and skyline) through its revolutionary glass windows. Hear that? Yep, it’s popping-bottle time. Grab your bestie and get dancing.

8.  The Beneteau Sloop

The Beneteau Sloop

Cruise through New York City's harbor on the stunning Beneteau Sloop sailboat, courtesy of the captain. There’s a large table onboard ideal for food and drinks served by the professional and friendly crew. Ideal, right? Just don't forget to wave to the Statue of Liberty as the USA flag billows in the wind beside her. 

9.  The Godfrey Sweetwater

The Godfrey Sweetwater

This comfy pontoon is ideal fun for all the family. It's easy to drive (that's one for you, cap) and has a built-in GPS and Bluetooth radio. The finishes are super modern and with adjustable roofing, you’ll have prime viewing of New York City all around. Please note that you must be at least 25 years of age to hire this boat.

10.  The Party Cruise

The Party Cruise

Perhaps the largest NYC party yacht rental we’ve seen, this party cruise is a step back into the early 2000s – but with an interactive DJ from 2023, thank goodness. Or not? Either way, marvel at the breathtaking views of New York while you sip on something cold included in the food and drinks package. Don’t you just love a win-win? We certainly do.

NYC’s #1 Luxury Yacht. See NYC like never before! NO HIDDEN FEES!

Italo gave us the BEST experience ever for my 21st birthday. Very patient and understanding and made sure we had the best time possible. Incredible man, incredible staff, INCREDIBLE experience. I would 100% book again with Italo. Truly made my birthday worthwhile, and one for the books for sure. I appreciated all he’s done for this trip. My entire party and I only have good words for this entire experience and their staff.

This boating experience provided was by far the highlight of our Bachelorette trip. The Bride had a blast and even go to get photos "steering" the boat. The staff on board was so much fun and jammed along to Taylor Swift with us the whole ride. The views where breath taking and the provided coolers was a nice touch (usually you have to bring your own on other boats). I would definitely recommend NYC Cycle Boats to anyone visiting. Being on the water right in front of the land marks creates a fully elevated experience and some great photo ops. Thank you Chris and everyone else on the team for making the Bride's time in NYC a blast!

Thanks for contacting us. We've received your submission.

Jennifer Garner shared an emotional message as her and Ben Affleck’s kids move “from one phase to the next.”

The actress thanked their three children’s elementary school teachers in a lengthy Instagram post after her son Samuel’s graduation.

“Thank you for a beautiful 13 years,” she gushed Thursday. “I cannot imagine our family landing anywhere better.”

Jennifer Garner and kids

Garner, who is also the mother of Violet, 18, and Seraphina, 15, called the school a “safe haven” for her little ones.

“Thank you for caring about my children with me, for tying their shoes and holding their hands,” she wrote. “Thank you for disciplining my kids when they’ve needed it and for offering more hugs than some children receive in a lifetime.

“I wanted my three to have a safe space where they could focus on the business of being little and where education and character were prioritized,” the “Alias” alum, 52, continued, noting that she also got instructors willing to dress up for Halloween and play hockey at lunch.

Samuel, 12, graduated Wednesday, with Garner celebrating the milestone with a party at Affleck’s rental home.

The actor, notably, has been living separately from his wife , Jennifer Lopez, amid divorce rumors — but the “Let’s Get Loud” singer, 54, did attend the bash .

She was also present at Violet’s party earlier this month to honor the teen’s high school graduation.

Ben Affleck

Lopez did, however, leave solo after one hour .

Garner, who was married to Affleck from 2005 to 2015, cried at Violet’s commencement , sharing the emotional photos with her Instagram followers.

“Tell me you have a graduate without telling me you have a graduate,” she captioned the teary snaps . “bless our hearts.”

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

Violet is seemingly headed to Yale University , with the grad rocking a sweater from the college in a recent photo shared on her school’s social media.

Lopez lunched with her eldest stepchild Thursday at the Maybourne Hotel.

The Grammy nominee has two kids of her own — 16-year-old twins Emme and Max — and she and Affleck blended their families after tying the knot in 2022.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck

The “Gigli” co-stars are now selling their $60 million Beverly Hills, Calif., home , with more photos of the interior recently appearing in its Zillow listing .

Affleck considers the property “too far” from his kids , while Lopez finds it “too big,” People reported Tuesday.

The pair have yet to comment on split speculation besides J.Lo shutting down a bold reporter during her “Atlas” press tour last month.
